what to expect


It’s not easy visiting a new church for the first time, so here is some helpful info for your first visit.  


A warm but not intrusive greeting. We are committed to making sure your visit is as hassle free as possible. The first people you meet at Bethel will most likely be our “greeters” who will welcome you, answer any questions you might have, and hand you a weekly program. The program has some helpful info about Bethel, announcements, and the message notes for that week.


A safe place for your kids. There are activities for your children ages infant through 6th grade. Signs will clearly mark the way to the nursery and children’s activities.


The 9:15 & 10:30 Worship Experiences. When you enter Heritage Chapel or the auditorium, feel free to sit wherever you want. If you like coffee, just help yourself to the Refreshment Table. 


You will experience a variety of things:


A time of singing: Most services kick-off with a time of singing led by our talented and high-energy Worship Band. This is a great way to connect with God.


A time of giving. Please don’t feel any obligation to give. The offering is intended for our regular attenders. Those of us who believe in the way God is working through this church give the biblical “tithe” to support what is happening.


A strategic announcement time. As a group of people who desire to make a huge positive difference in the world it is important that we are all on the same page. At some point in the service, we will communicate where we are going together.


A creative media time. Often we will communicate through various media to support or introduce the theme of the day. If may be through skits, movie clips, songs, etc. Come out and see how enjoyable it can be to learn! 


A message time. Someone will speak for about 30 minutes. About 90 percent of the time it will be our insightful and often humorous Lead Pastor.


After the service. We’ll end the service with a song or prayer 60 - 75 minutes after starting. Have something to eat or more coffee at our Refreshment Table. Say “hi” to a few people, you will find our church to be incredibly friendly. On the way out, take a second to check out Guest Services. 


Thanks for being our guest!



WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe the Bible is God's Word. It is completely accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.


We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy. 


The Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man and is the only one who can reconcile us to God. Each time we partake of communion we remember Jesus lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.


We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. In order to receive forgiveness we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives. 


God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and powerful lives in order to help others more effectively. In order to live the holy, fruitful, and power-filled lives God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water, set our mind on Him and His purpose, and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.


We believe God can fill us with the power of the Holy Spirit, so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives, which is to glorify Him, strengthen the Church, and share the Gospel with the community in which we live.


We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth.
